Excellent experience! Would do it again....

We were first timers to New York and found it both informative culturally / historically and a great way to try before you buy when it comes to the cafes and restaurants in the village.

Next time we come, we are going to stay in this area rather than in Times Square as it is packed with the restaurants and cafes we love.

Susan, our guide, was excellent. She is a lifetime New Yorker and had a wealth of information about the history and culture of the area and the food that relates to it.

We would definitely recommend this as a must do experience for food lovers.

A delicious tour

I had a fantastic time on this tour. As someone from a multicultural city who has experienced lots of different cuisines, I was still delighted by the yummy treats offered during this tour. We learned several things about Greenwich Village and felt more comfortable getting around the neighbourhood after the tour.

There was more than enough food to leave you not wanting lunch. One of the great features was getting a fresh slice of hot pizza from the start. We even sat down for a bit during the middle of the tour to have some rissotto, and the fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies were such as treat.

When we walked through the restaurants and shops, I could tell the other customers were somewhat envious about what we weere eating and learning.

In addition, our tour guide was well-spoken, cheerful, knowledgeable, and as in-love with NYC as we became.

I'd highly recommend the Greenwich Village tour. Dress warmly, wear comfortable shoes, and come with an empty stomach. Cheers!

Very Entertaining

If you've done New York before and want something different, this is it! Gives you a great insight into Greenwich Village - the history as well as the shops and restaurants. The tour obviously depends on a good tour guide - if you have Kurt then you've struck lucky - he was extremely knowledgable, very entertaining and amusing -he made the time pass so quickly. The food also was more than we thought - even my 21 year old son who can eat for England didn't need any lunch afterwards! Definitely would recommend it.

This was our second food tour. Did Greenwich Village on our last visit and enjoyed it so much we were determined to try a different tour this year and brought along five friends. Everyone thanked us for our recommendation. The tour guide was great and the food was fantastic. Plenty for lunch. Hope to do the other Greenwich Village tour on our next NYC visit. Thanks for providing such an interesting, informative and tasty tourist attraction.

What a wonderful opportunity to hear the history and savour the tastes of the Chelsea Market. This "hot " area is home to top restaurants and top designers and a has a fun feature in the High Line Park.

Bob Gelber lead our group and was an outstanding guide. He knows the area intimately and knows the merchants personally. He was patient and humourous. This was a highlight of our New York weekend and we would highly recommend the experience.

Guiltless Gourmet in Greenwich
Mon, Nov 16, 09   11:00 AM ENielsen Unspecified 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
The tour is well-planned, easily walkable with plenty of sitting-to-eat breaks (I'm 20 weeks pregnant, and I never felt outpaced), and most importantly delicious food! The tour sampled 7 outstanding local establishments, while highlighting others that we might also like to enjoy (and many in my group did immediately go try the extra choices when the tour was over). We got a wonderful sense of the West Village--its character, history, gossip, and fabulous foods! A very, very special tour. I can't recommend it enough.

Food for Thought
Thu, Nov 12, 09   11:30 AM genuinerisk1 Unspecified Unspecified Combination Group of Friends
Our group of nine consisted of three former New Yorkers, two Brits and visitors from Kentucky, Michigan and Massachusetts. All LOVED this tour. Our tour day was rainy and cool but nothing dampened our experience. We learned about the Village and ate our way from pizza to cookies and from a subtle cauliflower appetizer to faux BBQ'd pork at a Japanese vegetarian restaurant (and yes, you read that correctly). We learned about early Village history and it's modern development; about Washington Irving and Edna St. Vincent Millay; about Cherry Lane Theatre and basement jazz on Cornelia St. Dave, our guide was great. It is hard to please all of the people all of the time but Dave did this for more than three hours of fabulous fare and fun - even the jaded former New Yorkers were dazzled by what had been in their backyard, missed till now.

I'm a foodie! And my english is not good. But I did understand the tastings. New York surprised me most on this tour. All I can say: New York (read: Greenwich Village), I LOVE YOU!!!

Kind regards!

Great tour-delicious food and informative history

We did the Greenwich Village - Soho tour and were totally thrilled with it. When I booked it I was afraid it might be a bit cheezy and inauthentic, but thought we'd give it a shot anyway. I knew from the first stop that we were in for a good day. The food we ate at the Indian restaurant was absolutely delicious, and the other diners in the restaurant were from Mumbai, so it was clearly an authentic place! All of the other sites were terrific too - almost all locally owned for generations by the same family. It really felt like we were getting an insider's glimpse into the neighborhood food scene. Our guide was great - a young guy that knew his history and his food. And the other people in our group were sophisticated and polite, so it didn't feel like you were being dragged around with some huge obnoxious tour group. I would reccomend the tour to anyone!

The tour was so much fun and we ate some amazing food. Our tour guide Cindy was so upbeat and it seemed like all of the local vendors knew her extremely well. She really went out of her way to personalize everything.

The weather was rainy and miserable but the time flew with how much fun we had.

I'd recommend this tour to anyone! Local or tourist.

Easy, Interesting and Tasty!

This tour was a nice intro to Greenwich Village, a gem neighborhood of NYC that's full of quaint and delicious restaurants, specialty shops, theaters and cool places to live.

Our guide was friendly and informed, dropping in enough history and current culture to make the midday trek through the Village continually interesting. Plus, the " food tastings" were great!

A delightful, informative walk through the Village
Fri, Oct 16, 09   1:00 PM ElKazanjian Unspecified 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The four of us, two women and our husbands have been to Greenwich Village many times on our visits to New York. But this was the first time we thoroughly enjoyed walking through, leisurely stopping at places, looking into windows, meeting shop keepers, tasting different foods, learning about the history of the neighborhood an New York, and generally having a good time.

Our tour guide, Sephra, was well informed, humorous, provided all kinds of information about places, buildings, restaurants, where to eat, places of interest, and people who live in the village. Because of her we later came back and ate at The Commerce Restaurant (good Sunday Brunch), and enjoyed an outstanding performance of Judith Ivey at the Cherry Lane Theatre. We later also frequented other places on our own, and felt like we really knew the neighborhood. If I moved from San Francisco, I would probably move to Manhattan, and live in the village. Sephra was a terrific guide--make sure she stays with your organization. She was a bonus. Elise Kazanjian
